Bleeding during stool

I am a 21 Year old male with junk diet. I recently fell sick and lost my digestion. I couldn't digest khichdi too and would have severe loose motions. That took a while to get fine. A few days ago the skin around my anal opening tore due to very hard stool. I bled for a while, then it happened every time I passed stools. My muscles cannot expand properly. And I feel that my skin is tearing, then I bleed again. Wasn't until recently when I started passing hard dark Brown, almost black stools. now I realised that my skin is not bleeding, the blood is pasty and is coming from inside. Pls suggest

Hello there..... I went through your query.... Add fiber to your diet. Eating about 25 to 30 grams of fiber a day can help keep stools soft and improve healing. Fiber-rich foods include fruits, vegetables, nuts and whole grains. You also can take a fiber supplement.... Avoid straining during bowel movements. Straining creates pressure, which can open a healing tear or cause a new tear....
